Have you noticed lately that all the retail businesses around are doing facelifts to a more sophisticated industrial chic look? I was in a McDonalds this week getting a cup of coffee and thought I walked into a Starbucks!!! The palates of gray, black and white mixed with weathered wood was everywhere. Also there are touches of galvanized metal and pendants everywhere. I really like the simplicity and freshness of this new style. Industrial chic is very adaptable in to you own home.
